It is every crypto’s goal to get listed on as many crypto exchanges as possible, and Coinbase is among the top exchanges that every crypto would like to join. By getting listed on this exchange, the coins would receive a lot of benefits and would get that much more exposure. This is also a goal for Ripple (XRP) and Ox (ZRX), although their chances of getting to Coinbase are not as high as their supporters would like.

With many new coins getting adopted by various big exchanges around the world, it is not that surprising that those left out wish to join the party. This especially goes for Ripple (XRP) and Ox (ZRX), and their investors are waiting for the announcement that they are getting on Coinbase with each passing day. And yet, the announcement is not coming, possibly for several reasons.

Why Coinbase won’t accept Ripple?

Coinbase recently announced that it will adopt Ethereum Classic as one of its newest cryptocurrencies, which was a big surprise for the Ripple fans. Considering that XRP is the third largest digital currency on CoinMarketCap, Ripple enthusiasts were confused with this choice, now that Coinbase decided to open up to new cryptos.

With Ripple’s success, high rank, large community, and acceptance by banks and other financial institutions around the world, it would be easy to think that this coin meets all of the requirements needed to get listed. Still, this might not be true, and Coinbase itself said as much.

The reasons for this include various pending cases and legal issues, and the recent revelations involving bribery are also not helping this crypto. A large part of the reason why Ripple isn’t being accepted is also the fact that it is still highly centralized. Not only that, but its parent company still holds a large majority of the XRP coins (more than 80%). This is simply not acceptable for a digital currency that claims to be a real crypto.

Despite the fact that Ripple continues to argue that their token is not a security, many are still not convinced, and the decentralization of the coin that was promised has yet to arrive. Because of this, and the pending cases that were mentioned earlier, Ripple definitely still doesn’t meet the necessary requirements.

What is the issue with Ox (ZRX)?

Ox is a very different crypto than Ripple, and it allows its users to trade any ERC-20 coin via its ZRX token. The coin became popular recently, which led its enthusiasts to believe that this crypto has a shot at joining Coinbase sometime soon. Seemingly, the coin does actually meet all the necessary requirements that are needed in order for it to be adopted by this exchange.

It is decentralized, has economic freedom, and is even complying with the laws and regulations. The issue lies with the recent developments regarding Coinbase’ s platform. The exchange has announced recently that it is trying to get regulatory permission to add blockchain and crypto security assets. That way, it would be capable of offering securities based on the blockchain, with SEC overseeing the procedures.

This is why it soon might not be in need of services that Ox has to offer, which is why the coin doesn’t really have a chance. Of course, nothing is certain as of yet, and only time will tell whether any of this is actually going to transpire. However, if it does, then Ox will probably have to aim at some other exchange.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
